2018 Rugby Africa Bronze Cup: Ghana to face Mauritius in final

The Eagles of Ghana have booked a place in the finals of the 2018 Rugby Africa Bronze Cup after an emphatic 57-0 win over Rwanda at the Nduom Sports Stadium. 

Ghana started the semi-final tie on a positive note, dominating play and forcing their smaller opponents into errors.

The Eagles, who are the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, were organized in the back row, solid in the centre row and lethal in front row.

In the second period, Rwanda came into the game but they could not find an antidote to Ghana’s effective wing play.

Despite the hevay win, head coach of the Eagles Lovemore Kuzorero said he expected more from his team.

“We’re going back to the drawing board. We still have things to work on. We’ll fill all the loopholes. We’ll come back on Saturday and do better than what he did today”, coach Kuzorero told JoySports.

President of the Ghana Football Rugby Union Herbert Mensah expressed his delight with the progress the Eagles have made in the last three years.

“I think Ghana is four or five years ahead of schedule. The victory today[Wednesday] is an indication of progress, not success. It’s not an indication of success. I focus more on progress.”

In the second semi-final, Mauritius produced a spectacular performance to rout Lesotho 49-16.

Mauritius will face Ghana in Saturday’s final while Lesotho and Rwanda lock horns in the third-place play-off.

The winner of the 2018 Rugby Africa Bronze Cup will earn a spot to compete in the Silver Cup which comes off later this year.
